    It is better not to criticize people when you are not even sure of itinery of teams in a competition.This report is not even a news in the first place.That’s how teams prepare when the competition already on.Their last training is always a closed one.Madagascar will also do the same tomorrow. Do your research about all other teams and you will know it is not peculiar to Nigeria. Get enough info and facts right about an issue before you start any criticism.

      • Theophilus 5 years ago

        I believe during the open training fit and unfit players can be known as well.
        I do not think we should bother about how to choose to train and get ready for the match ,we should wait and see what all that will produce on the field of play .
